2016 Acura TLX

With the newest design of the 2016 Acura TLX vehicle you will get a car which is both reliable and technologically sound. What Acura mainly likes to do is to make their cars a technologically sound option for any sort of a driver. People may rely on these types of cars and the new TLX is no different in this way.

The car will come out with some updated and upgraded features. Besides the look which will perhaps be similar as before, the greatest additions are expected to come under the hood on on the inside of the car. With the update on the steering and handling and providing more options when it comes to the engine type, the new Acura TLX can prove to be a great choice for the upcoming model year.

The price of the vehicle is perhaps something that can provide a difference in opinion when it comes to deciding whether to purchase this car, but all in all it is not too shabby and it is similar to the one before. We expect the car to make its appearance really soon and you can read about all the known facts till now in this review.

As the newest 2016 Acura TLX is going against some pretty sturdy competition and it will need to fair mighty well if it is going to hold its own compared with some other performance cars, it needs a certain edge. We don’t see the TLX actually pooling this off but it has a certain kind of potential. This model year the car has received two engine choices that you can use. The first and the base one is the 2.4-liter four-cylinder which is not a bad choice bit it will certainly not get you places. That is why there is the added 3.5-liter V-6 with which produces 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque and is a much more powerful and competitively sound option. The base engine option will come paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic shifter, while the second one is going to be used with the Honda’s new nine-speed automatic one. The second engine option also includes the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive as well.

2016 Acura TLX Price and release date

The base MSRP price of the 2016 Acura TLX is set at 32,615 USD which is not a big leap from the last year’s model but it is a change that will fancy some and not be too appealing to most. Well the fans are not going to spare any expenses when it comes to purchasing this car but it will be uncertain if it is going to attract some attention of the new base of customers who are not certain if the change is worthwhile for them. The competition will be fierce this time so there is no telling how they will be able to reach a new set of fans this time.

Interior

The inside of the 2016 Acura TLX has everything that you could expect from a sports sedan car. The 2016 Acura TLX is technologically very sound and has a certain amount of sporty comfort to it which make it all worthwhile when going inside the car. The biggest setback is the lack of sport aspired seats which would have add more aggressiveness to the interior, but this could be something that will be easy addressed in the future and all the upcoming models of the TLX which will most certainly come. But what the Acura has inside a few sports sedans actually have. The gadgetry is plentiful and the amenities are vast and appropriate for the car. The instrument panel may be small but has updated technology so it actually makes it all worthwhile. It is perhaps the most useful part of the vehicle and its two-tier display enables easier use of it.

The higher trim levels actually include a larger offer of amenities. For instance, you may opt for a TLX with dual-zone automatic climate control,  keyless entry and start,  a power sunroof, heated front seats, AcuraLink connectivity, updated navigation, a premium ELS audio system and some enhanced safety features that are blind-spot and forward-collision warnings, lane-keeping assist and seven air bags added on the inside. All of this is available in the Advance model of the car and makes it even more technologically superior to others and gives you some great safety features to go with it as well.

2016 Acura TLX Exterior

The look of the new 2016 Acura TLX remains largely the same. In most parts it is essentially the vehicle that was already introduced in 2015 with only some minor additions. The car has been remodeled as of late and has already received some higher changes that were introduced previously, so it was a bit pointless to update it so soon. So the car will retain much of its aerodynamic and performance-enhancing shape but we are hoping for a new set of wheels to be added soon. What the car could also use is a new set of tires. In order to enhance its racing potential the car needs to stick better to the ground and with the updated performance features the car needs this badly now. With some better tires the car is going to be also much better, but till then expect some troubles with the friction. The minor changes that were done keep the racy feel to the car and retain its sporty characteristics and make the update a modern one which adds a current look to the car.
